OVO's newest wunderkind iloveMakonnen has teamed up with Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig on the remix to "Down 4 So Long". Rapper, Despot also appears on the 5-minute track.

On the track Koenig name checks Bobby Shmurda, Nicolas Sarkozy, Mary Kate Olsen, and the small country of Monaco. It’s a treat. Ezra is joined by Despot toward the end of the track for the perfect melding of genres.

The remix was in collaboration with Red Bull's 20before15 project.

For the past three weeks, we asked some of the artists we had the honour to work with in 2014 to share some amazing music with you. To celebrate our final day, we have a special treat: not one but four exclusive tracks to take you into the new year. ILoveMakonnen x Ezra Koenig x Despot. Inky x Mala. Mumdance. Ossie. Enjoy... and see you on the flip side!

Redbull, 20before15

Red Bull offered a thousand free downloads of the track, which were snapped up immediately, of course.
